Orientation Leaders (OL) have the privilege of introducing students to campus and student life, creating a memorable experience, and being a trusted guide, mentor, and friend.
What Do Great Orientation Leaders Do?
At each of the orientation events listed below, great orientation leaders will:
Maintain enthusiasm and ensure student participation in all orientation events
Serve as a positive role model at orientation and beyond
Be available to work the entire duration of orientation
Participate fully in orientation leader training and required activities
Uphold all standards of the Regent Community and fulfill all orientation expectations
Summer Orientation, Advising & Registration (SOAR) is our Summer Orientation just for freshmen. This orientation event often forms for students a significant bond with Regent and the orientation leaders. Staying overnight in the Regent Commons, SOAR is an opportunity for students transitioning from high school (and homeschool) to get connected with other students, meet student leaders, view their potential housing arrangements, meet with their academic advisor, and get ready for the fall. Parents and their siblings usually attend as well. We hold two (or more) events with different groups of students. OLs will be provided housing accommodations in the Regent Commons for the duration of this time. Review the qualifications.
Campus Connection and Welcome Week occurs between move-in day and the first day of classes. This is the most intensive orientation experience. Beginning with the excitement of Move-in Day, there are two days of getting to know classmates, student leaders, staff, and professors, hearing about exciting opportunities from the Offices of Student Activities and Campus Ministries, and learning about the various resources and services that will help students to succeed at Regent. Welcome Weekend includes the First Friday Frenzy, a trip to Sandbridge, a late night trip to Target, First Chapel, and a BBQ over a 5-day period. OLs already slated to live on campus will be permitted to move in early. Review the qualifications.
